It’s been awfully stressful being a Marvel fan in Pakistan. A while ago, ‘Captain Marvel’ never released in Pakistan after the regional office in India for the film’s official distributor, Disney refused to give a license to Pakistan. Cinepax Cinemas even released a statement about the release, saying “the Disney’s regional office didn’t give Pakistan the rights to run Captain Marvel.”
Legit so stressful.
The pending issue with ‘Captain Marvel’ seeped through to the possibility that ‘Avengers: Endgame’ won’t be releasing either (considering its the same distributor).
After ‘Captain America’ was banned, ‘Samaa TV’ spoke to Mandviwala Entertainment, who said that the notion that ‘Captain Marvel’ not releasing in Pakistan has anything to do with political tension is totally baseless. Samaa also spoke to local distributors Eveready Pictures and their representative, Aziz Pasha said that this delay has come up due to price negotiations between them and Disney after a third party offered Disney more money for the rights of the movie.
Fans of ‘Avengers: Endgame’ expressed their dismay over the film not releasing in Pakistan, and even started a petition on change.org, ‘Release Avengers Endgame and Captain Marvel in Pakistan.’
So Avengers Endgame won't be released in Pakistan i hate everything pic.twitter.com/VFmSwNqLsJ

However, in brighter news, we spoke to the local distributors and they confirmed that the film WILL be releasing in Pakistan! “Yes. Will be released as of now…”
Isn’t that lovely news!
Other confirmations have begun surfacing on Twitter too about various Pakistanis calling cinemas to verify whether or not ‘Avengers: Endgame’ is being released.
Hi, Endgame will release in Pakistan btw. Cinemas are confirming it.
I called Cine Star and asked them that don't give false information but they were saying they're telling the truth and they have reliable sources plus the issues has been resolved.
